CottageCutz Gift Box with Deer Tags

Greetings everyone and welcome to another CottageCutz Creation......Warning-this is a very heavy photo post with lots of ideas for tags and possible gift giving creation.  What you see here is a box purchased from "Dollar General".  We have a lot of these stores in the South.  I thought this box was so pretty and super cute.  I did not cover the pretty design with another paper.  I just added die cuts to it to compliment the tags I created to go inside.
This is called the Frosty and Friends Scene die.  Isn't it darling.  If fit perfectly on the back of the box.  I just had to use it there.
As you have probably guessed by now, I created tags to go inside this pretty box.  It's a super cute give to give to a friend and would also make a great swap gift.  The tags are 4-3/4" x 3".  The heavy Michael's cardstock was used for the base and Authentique "Believe" paper is the background.  This tag uses Merry Christmas Reindeer.  The die was cut twice.  Once on dark brown card stock and red cardstock.  The Merry Christmas was layered in red on top of the die.  The flower is the Poinsettia & Holly die and was used on all the tags that have flowers.
Oh this is so cute.  I can't help myself.  This is called Santa with Reindeer Sleigh.  The sleigh was cut on matte gold cardstock, the Santa on red and his bags on green and the reindeer on dark brown cardstock.  I used two reindeers so it would like Santa was taking off.   The Noel die is from the "Expressions" line and also used several times throughout to keep with the theme.
For the layering on these tags, I cut dark brown cardstock a 1/4" less that the base and used the dark brown to highlight the deer in these tags.  The designer paper was also cut 1/4" less than the brown cardstock.  This die is called Filigree Deer.
The center of the tags use the Spellbinders Scalloped Circle and the Circle die.  They are layered on top of a small Wilton Doily.  This tag uses the Majestic Deer die and the Wintry Trees Die.
For the ribbon on the tags white seam binding was used for the tie and the bow.  All the little embellishments are Recollection from Michael's.  This die is the Deer with Pine Trees.  The Fir Tree die was also used to create a forest feel to the background.
For this tag the Fir Tree die was used again for the background.  The trees were painted with puff paint, dipped in glitter, and dried with a heat gun to make the paint puff up like snow.  This is from the Deer Standing and Sitting die.  Of course this is the deer sitting, but the deer standing was used on both of the sides of the box that house these tags for gift giving.
This tag features Deer W/ Birch Trees.   The Fir Tree Die was used again to intertwine in the background for a wintery forest look.
For this tag the Whimsical Deer with Bird was used.  For the flower the ivy was used on this tag to expand the floral arrangement.
This tag features the Stag with Poinsettia die.  You can see where this theme is going right!  I just love this tag set.  I had so much fun creating it.
Here are the tags nestled inside the box ready for gift giving.  Sure do hope you enjoyed viewing this creation and maybe got some ideas for a gift for someone special in your life.  Until next time, thank you so much for dropping by.  Happy Crafting!
